Good for you, CBS! I pray your are the broadcaster who can revive daytime dramas with one or two new programs some day. Oh, how I still miss ATWT and GL! I am pleased the Eye embraces the genre and the daypart with a solid ad campaign!

I have never watched daytime tv… I can’t think of anything more dreadful lol ..
I was in an accident hospitalized..
my woman roomie watched Y&R and GH everyday and explained the players to me etc and I got hooked.

I do not want to see Nick with Chelsea, but I also do not want him to reunite with Sharon for the millionth time. Why don’t they mix it up a little? Stop with the repeat cycle and try Hillary out with Nick? Ravi should be romantically linked to Mariah, not Ashely–those two do not fit. Billy and Victoria also need to stop with the repeat cycle and find love else where.

Addison, I agree with what you wrote about Nick and Chelsea-boring and zero chemistry. Ravi and Mariah, ugh, that would give Mariah even more air-time and I find the actress/character to be really obnoxious. I love Ashley and agree that she has zero chemistry with Ravi-just ridiculous that someone like Ashley would be so protective of her employee. I could do without the train wreck of Billy’s life and Victoria-the actress has no chemistry with anyone, IMO & seriously, does she need to continue to remind two grown men that she is “the boss.” Give me a break.

I love that commercial. Nice to see the network letting viewers know that there are still stars to watch during the day. Maybe not as big as Denzel or Julia but they’re still big names worth seeing every day.

I do not understand why the ratings are down for Y&R. I do not fast forward through any of Y&R and today’s show (2/14-17) was pitch perfect. I loved Ashely thinking back about her father which was served up to us with flashbacks. Jack is back to acting like ole smiling Jack and that’s good to see. I have to amend my earlier post in which I said that I didn’t think Ashely and Rave fit. Today, those two won me over–Ravi is incredibly sweet and Ashely could use a little of that in her life right now. I also… Read more »

Exec Prod Frank Valentini On GH’s Return with New Episodes: “There is a Bang and a Surprise and a Twist”

Monday, General Hospital will finally be airing a new episode – the first in months due to COVID-19 – which had previously shut down production of the show.  Now with safety protocols in place, GH will become the first ABC network show back on TV with original installments.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to ABC 7 Los Angeles’ entertainment guru George Pennacchio on the legacy soap opera’s return and picking up the story where things left off.

Valentini offered up for Monday’s episode: “The very first few seconds of the show, I think, will blow a lot of the audience’s mind because there’s a big surprise that we inserted in.”

Meanwhile, viewers know that their is a major custody case going on for Wiley/Jonah, and that Mike’s (Max Gail) battle with Alzheimer’s could wrap in the coming months if the story continues as it had before the shut down.

However, Valentini shared that fans have some very exciting things to look forward to on GH: “There is a bang and a surprise and a twist and it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

In addition, Pennacchio reports that the GH Nurses’ Ball will return sometime in August, which usually airs in May, but didn’t, because of COVID-19 this past spring.

As to how GH will handle the love scenes, the kisses, and the intimate moments between characters which are a staple of the genre during the health crisis, Frank expressed:”Physical intimacy is limited.  We’re going to leave a lot more to the imagination.”

So, what surprises do you think are in store as previewed by Valentini when GH returns with new episodes? Comment below.

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.
